A Collaborative Story by Sanvi, Pragya, and Nethra

Ariel’s birthday was coming up. Belle decided to host a surprise party for her.

Beep beep! Mulan felt her phone vibrate in her pocket. 

“Hey, Belle,” Mulan answered. “What’s up?” 

“Let’s have a surprise birthday party for Ariel. We can have it at my pool. How about this Saturday at 12pm? Can you bring some pool toys?” Belle said.

“Sure. I can bring a beach ball, pool noodles, and a floatie,” Mulan  said. 

Next, Belle called Aurora.

“Hi, how are you?” she asked.

“I’m okay, I was just napping,” Aurora answered drowsily.

“Sorry to wake you. I’m hosting a surprise pool party for Ariel’s birthday on Saturday at 12:00pm. Can you come?” Belle asked.

“Sure. Sounds fun. What should I bring?” Aurora inquired.

“How about pizza, lemonade, ice cream, and popsicles?” Belle suggested.

“Great. See you then,” Aurora said.

After that, Belle called Elsa.

“Hi, Elsa. Is Anna nearby?”

“Hi, Belle. Yes, we just came home from ballet class and we are stretching. I will put you on speakerphone,” Elsa replied. 

“Hi, Anna. I’m hosting a surprise birthday party for Ariel at my pool. Are you free this Saturday at 12:00pm?”

“Sure! Definitely we are free. What should we bring?” Anna said.

“How about you bring Olaf and a birthday cake?” Belle laughed.

“We would love to!” Elsa exclaimed.

Then, Belle called Rapunzel.

“Hello?” Rapunzel said.

“Hi, Rapunzel. I’m hosting a pool party for Ariel’s birthday this Saturday at noon. Can you come?” Belle replied excitedly.

“Definitely. I can bring decorations,” Rapunzel offered.

“Of course,” Belle said. “See you then!” 

Finally, Belle called Ariel. 

“Hi, Ariel. Are you free this Saturday? Do you want to come over and go swimming around 12:30?” Belle asked.

“Sounds great. Anyone else coming?” Ariel replied.

“Nope, just us,” Belle lied. 

The day of the party arrived. Belle finished tidying her home and was setting up the pool area. She looked at her watch. It was 11:55am. Belle was so excited for her friends to get there so they could prepare for the party before Ariel arrived. 

Meanwhile, Mulan was on her way to Belle’s house. She parked her

car and suddenly realized she had forgotten to bring the pool toys.

“Oops! I don’t have enough time to go back and get them. Well, it’s not a big deal. We can still have fun without beach toys,” Mulan thought to herself. She rang the doorbell and Belle greeted her.

“Hi, Belle. Bad news… I forgot to bring the pool toys. I’m sorry. We can still have fun without them, right?” Mulan muttered. 

“That’s okay,” said Belle. She was disappointed, but the party would still be fun. 

Meanwhile, Rapunzel spent the whole morning painting her tower purple and gray. Suddenly, she looked at the clock.

“Oh my! It’s 12:00! I’m late and I won’t have time to make decorations like I said I would. Well, I better rush over to Belle’s. It’s not a big deal,” 

Rapunzel arrived at Belle’s house and rang the doorbell. 

“Hi Rapunzel. Did you bring the decorations? Mulan and I are setting up,” Belle said. 

“Oh, about that…” Rapunzel began. 

“Let me guess. You forgot them,” Belle said gloomily. 

“I’m really sorry,” Rapunzel apologized.

“It’s okay. Come on in,” Belle said. She was a little frustrated that Mulan and Rapunzel didn’t bring what they said they would, but the party would still be great. Belle looked at the time. It was 12:10. Where are Aurora, Anna, and Elsa? she thought. Just then, the doorbell rang. 

“Hi Anna, Elsa, and Olaf.” Belle greeted them, excited to see the birthday cake. Where’s the cake?”

“Oh, no! We forgot the cake!” Anna gasped. 

“We are so sorry!” Elsa apologized. “At least we brought Olaf?” she said hopefully. 

“You forgot the cake?! Mulan forgot the pool toys and Rapunzel forgot the decorations. Now we won’t have cake, either! And where is Aurora?!” Belle squealed.

“I can call Aurora and see where she is,” Elsa offered. 

“Okay, thanks,” Belle said calmly.

Elsa pulled out her phone and dialed Aurora’s number. It rang five times until finally she answered. Elsa put the call on speakerphone.

“Hello?” Aurora said sleepily.

“Are you kidding me?! You were asleep? It’s Ariel’s birthday party right now!” Belle shrieked. “So there will be no pool toys, no decorations, no cake, no food, and no Aurora, either.” Suddenly, the doorbell rang.

“Oh my gosh, Ariel is here!” Belle gasped. “Quick, everyone hide!” Belle opened the door. 

“Hel-” Ariel started.

“Happy Birthday!” All of her friends shouted. 

“Oh my! What are you guys doing here? I thought it was just me and you, Belle,” Ariel said. 

“Well, actually I organized a birthday party for you…but nobody brought what they promised. So there will be no pool toys, no decorations, no cake, no food, and no Aurora, either. She fell asleep,” Belle said almost in tears. 

Her friends stood silently, feeling terrible for breaking their promises. 

“We are so sorry,” Mulan said. Rapunzel, Elsa, and Anna agreed. 

“We ruined your party,”

The Greedy Girl and the Leprechaun

A Collaborative Story by Sanvi, Pragya, and Nethra


There once was a girl named Maytal. She went out for a walk with her dog, Darla, who was sniffing a patch of grass. Maytal looked down to see what she was sniffing. She found a four-leaf clover and bent down to pick it.

“Ow!” said the clover.

Maytal screamed, realizing that it was not a four-leaf clover, but it was a tiny leprechaun! He handed her a map. 

“Follow this map and you will find a pot of gold and diamonds,” said the leprechaun. 

“Really?! Yay! I’m going to be rich!” smiled Maytal, and the leprechaun disappeared. Maytal started to follow the map. She thought to herself, “I’m not going to share any of that gold or diamonds with anyone.”

Maytal and Darla came upon a maze. The walls were made of wheat and corn. Darla used her nose to lead Maytal out of the maze.

“Good girl, Darla!” Maytal handed her a treat. “I can’t wait to get all that gold and diamonds! I’ll buy myself a mansion!” 

Next, Maytal came upon a mountain. At the edge of the mountain was a valley full of quicksand. Maytal needed to cross a wobbly bridge to get to the other side. 

“Stay here, Darla. You can’t come with me. You will fall off the bridge,” Maytal said. “I’m so close to the pot of gold and diamonds!” Maytal started to climb the rainbow, but it was so slippery.  She saw the pot of gold ahead of her. Luckily, she had a backpack with rope in it. She made a lasso with the rope and hooked it around the pot. She held onto the rope and climbed up the rainbow. 

“Yes! I found the pot of gold and diamonds!” Maytal shrieked. She peered into the pot.

Splash!! A green underbaked cupcake was in the pot, and Maytal got frosting all over her face! 

“I hope you learned your lesson,” said the leprechaun who had just appeared.

“What lesson?!” Maytal asked, wiping green frosting off her face.

“You were greedy and wanted to keep all the gold and diamonds for yourself. If you had not been greedy, you would have gotten all the riches, and you would have been able to share the riches with your family, friends, neighbors, and anyone who needs it.” 

The End!

One day she gave it a twirl

There once was a colorful towel

Who was taken by a brown owl

She put it in her nest

Then she took a long rest

Till the towel let out a loud howl

There once was a tiger named Lion

Who met a funny friend named Brian

They went to a park

Where they met a shark

They laughed until they were cryin’

Reading strategies for Students with Learning Disabilities

Reading strategies for Students with Learning Disabilities

Learning Disabilities refer to a group of disorders. These disorders stop us from learning, reading, or writing better in our daily life. A learning disability does not mean that they can’t learn. A student with this disability has average intelligence. Students who have a reading disability will need direct teaching methods. Since they know a bit differently, the teachers can straightforwardly teach them.

Students with reading disabilities have the potential to be successful. Most students with reading disabilities improve through strategic reading, writing, and viewing. Provided they get help from the teachers the right way. Teachers, when intervened early, can offer intensive support to the students. Despite these efforts, many struggle to read.  They have difficulty reading unfamiliar and challenging words. Students cannot connect ideas and decode words.

Proficient Reading skills are essential for students to succeed. If students are not competent readers, they may be at risk. There are different types of learning disabilities. Today, we are here to address reading disabilities. Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein are all thought to have had a Learning disability.

Let’s start by looking at what the research says about reading strategies:

What is Reading Strategies?

The Ultimate goal of reading is to extract meaning from what you read. The older students with Learning disabilities need increasing instructional responses. So, when the students read, they have a lot going around in their heads. They use the power of sounds/symbols relationship in phonics to decode the words they don’t know.

In the case of a young student reading- they decode many or most words in the text as they build their vocabulary. They begin to rely less and less on sounding words. As their language grows, so does fluency. Fluency is nothing but the accuracy of reading the text steadily with an accurate tone.

Finally, the student understands what they read or comprehend. There are different comprehension strategies we use to know what we are reading. We make new images in our minds, connect to the text or use reasoning. The following are some ways we can help students with Learning disabilities.

Let us start with the basic:

Decoding Words and Letters:

Communication is a result of sentences that we use every day. Sentences are from words and words from sounds. Children, at first, play with new stories and create new language patterns. They develop phonemic awareness by singing songs, chanting rhymes and reading books. Students learn new words every day. They make an understanding of how oral language works in many ways.

Beginning readers develop their concepts of letters. By recognizing letters in print, name, singing, students begin to understand this relationship. For some children, teachers also have to provide small-group instructions. Teachers have to be open, systematic, and supportive than they usually are. This way they can develop a direct relationship with phonics.

Phonics helps students develop a sound-letter relationship which allows them to decode better. Think about solving the word ‘fish,’ and you need to hear first, understand terms, and put them into effect.

The following are some ways the teachers can help students to learn how to decode:

  • Breaking down of big tasks into smaller tasks
  • Helping students organize the information in a systematic manner
  • Following a predictable pattern
  • It helps them build a word study pattern

Having Fluency:

Reading fluency is the ability to grasp and read texts fluently quickly. Fluent readers do not have to decode words with difficulty. They learn from developing good reading proficiency. Since fluent readers have a useful vocabulary, they make connections between different texts.

Students with Learning Disabilities tend to read calmly, laboring over the text structures. Sometimes the text may be too challenging to read. A lack of fluent reading means that the students lack confidence. If they encourage students to read more, they can become fluent readers. It also gives them improved reading skills.

Fluency comes with oral readings. Fluency is targeted through many other factors like:

  • Reading the same words again and again
  • When the reading is shared repeatedly
  • Self-Identifying reading errors
  • Visualization

Developing Vocabulary:

Students need to develop word awareness, to help them recognize words automatically. Children with learning disabilities think and understand differently. Understanding what they read and remember is the central act of learning. During the reading process, the students have to know what they read. They also have to figure out the different strategies that work. Students develop recognition of most words they hear, see and write.

Vocabulary has to be developed, expanded, and taught. Extending the language and expanding it requires exposure to words and their meanings. They must be taught to use various strategies which enhance their word strength.

Some of the effective vocabulary strategies occur when:

  • Activity-based methods
  • Computer-assisted methods
  • Exposure to new words
  • Interaction with the same terms to process deeply
  • Making connections between old and new words

Final Notes:

Prevention and early intervention provided by well-trained teachers can improve reading methods. It can change from a poor reader to a good reader. If we delay intervention, approximately 75% of the children continue to have reading disabilities.

Why Python is better than other languages?

Why Python is better than other languages?

Are you a beginner who is interested in learning code? Then, Python will be a great place for you to get started with.

There are plenty of programming languages to learn. But, Python is one of the best programming languages designed with simplicity in mind. As a beginner, you might have wondered “why Python is better than other languages?” If you’ve puzzled with such a question, the answer is here for you.

In this blog, we’ve provided you some reasons why you should choose python. Without any fuss, let’s take a short tour to explore some interesting facts about Python.

What is Python?

What is Python exactly? Python is one of the most popular programming languages that can be widely used for a variety of applications. Also, it is a general-purpose coding language that includes high-level data structures, dynamic binding, dynamic typing, and much more.

Despite these, Python is one of the beginner-friendly programming languages. It serves as a gateway to the coding world.

Apart from the key fact, there are other reasons why Python is more popular. Here we go with them:

1. Easy to learn and code

Consistently, Python is ranking as one of the easiest programming languages to learn. This is due to its high reliability and simple syntax which is quite similar to plain text. So, you can write a Python code simply and execute it much faster than the other programming languages. Even, one can change the code base of Python for the quick experiment as it is an interpreted language. Due to the ease of use, Python is even more popular among all kinds of developers.

2. Has a Healthy, Active, and Supportive community

In general, the Programming language may lack documentation and developer support at some point. Python has neither of those issues. It has plenty of documentation, tutorials, and guides to learn. Additionally, the developer community is active. That is, if someone needs any help or support while using Python, they can get instant support from the supportive community. The active community will ensure you with the developers from the basic skill level to the expert.

3. Support from great Corporate Sponsors

Usually, programming languages will grow faster especially when it has a great corporate sponsor at its back. For instance, Visual Basic and C# by Microsoft, PHP by Facebook, and Java by Oracle and Sun. Likewise, Python Programming language is heavily sponsored by Amazon web services, Facebook, and specifically by Google. Back in 2006, Google adopted python and have used it for many applications and various platforms since then. Further, Google has created a dedicated portal for Python. This is an added benefit for Python and becomes more trending among the developers.

4. Amazing Libraries and Frameworks

When you work on bigger projects, libraries can help to cut down the initial development cycle and save time. Due to a supportive community and corporate sponsorship, Python has an excellent selection of libraries from SciPy to Django for web development. Furthermore, few libraries include some specific focus like nltk for natural language processing and scikit-learn for machine learning applications. Also, Python has library-like tools to offer cross-platform support to the developers.

Aside from these, other few libraries and frameworks are accessible in Python. Some of them are:

5. Big Data, cloud computing, and Machine Learning

The use of cloud computing and big data in this enterprise world is one of the main reasons for the popularity of Python. Next to the R language for data science, Python is the most widely used tool. Hence, many data processing workloads in enterprises are powered by Python. Also, Python is mostly used for research and development due to its ease of analyzing and usable data organizing.

6. Versatile, Reliable, and Speed

If you ask any developer, they will heartily agree that Python Is reliable, efficient, and faster than other languages. Python language can be used in any kind of environment without facing any issue or loss. Also, it is versatile to use. Thus, you can use Python in various environments like web development, mobile applications, and much more. This makes it more attractive to use Python.

Importance of Learning Python Programming

We guess you might have a glimpse of why Python is so popular compared to other languages. Now, it’s time to know why you should learn Python and the importance of learning Python programming. Below are some reasons why you should learn Python.

1. Versatile and multiple programming paradigms

Like other programming languages, Python supports multiple programming paradigms like object-oriented programming and structured programming. Also, the features of Python will support various concepts like aspect-oriented and functional programming. As well, Python features automatic memory management and a dynamic type system that help you for developing large and complex software applications. Furthermore, Python has an automatic memory management system to deal with dynamic storage for easy handling.

2. Fast growing with high demand

In recent days, Python is used across many corporate industries and applications. Also, the explosive use in machine learning, data science, and Artificial intelligence increased Python’s popularity in the developer community. Hence, due to the lighting speed growth, Python programming is in high demand for jobs.

3. Web testing framework

Python has many in-built testing frameworks that cover the fastest debugging workflow. Also, like Selenium and Splinter, Python has many modules and tools to make things much easier. Well, we all know testing is a tedious task. Python is a booster for testing. Because it supports testing for cross-browser and cross-platform with the testing frameworks like PyTest and Robot. So, if you are a tester, you should go for Python.

4. Simplify complex development

The main goal of Python is to provide simplicity to get rid of complexity. So, Python is quite easier to read, write, and learn than other programming languages. Hence, you can use the Python programming language for developing both web and desktop applications. Further, Python is designed with some special features to facilitate visualization and data analysis. So, you can take the benefit of data analysis to create big data solutions without any effort and extra time.

5. Easy Access

Well, do you wish to access databases easily? Python will do it for you. Python has two strong points that allow the user to customize interfaces like Oracle, MySQL, etc. This allows you to access other databases rapidly. Furthermore, its integration and flexibility will allow it to run with other programming languages like CPython, Jython, etc.

Advantages of Python

Whenever you learn a new language, you must be aware of the advantages of that language. This will help you to get better knowledge to use the language powerfully while building a robust application. Below we have listed the advantages of Python. Make sure to keep your eyes on them.

1. High-level language

Python looks more similar to the human-readable language than other programming languages. This gives the ability to code at a faster rate than other languages. Python can be extended to other programming languages. So, you can code in languages like C or C++.

2. Simple Syntax

When compared to other programming languages. Python’s syntax is easy to learn. Both the programmers and non-programmers can begin programming right away.

3. Do more with less code

As we mentioned previously, Python is easy to learn and write, you can do more with less coding. That is, you can construct a prototype and test out your ideas faster in Python. So, using Python, you can save valuable time.

4. User-friendly Data Structures

Python is designed with an in-built dictionary data structure that can be used to build fast runtime. Further, Python doesn’t know the variable type, it automatically assigns the data type while executing the code. Hence, programmers need not worry about the variables and their data types.

5. Support libraries and third-party modules

Python has a large standard library. It includes areas like string operations, internet protocols, and operating system interfaces. The standard library of Python will reduce the length of the code for writing significantly. Additionally, the Python package has numerous third-party modules.
